I would like to have a registry for all 70 series.

Being in the North America, 70 series are pretty rare in Canada and even rarer in the USA (unsure about Mexico). So, my goal is to 1) identify the guys who have 70 series (and I am including Canadian JDMs) and 2) try to realize the market value of these vehicles. I have seen/heard claims that there are about 50-70 70 series in the US and less than 200 in Canada. I want to put actual data behind these claims.

Now, I know we have a lot of international mudders on here and I do not want to offend them. So, I will separate international 70s by country, so that they to can reap the benefits of the data that I am seeking in North America.

I will be editing this post frequently to append the information so that the list will be in first post for everyone, rather than throughout many pages. You can put this info using Reply or PM it to me. Also, please limit it to one post per 70.

So, here are the rules:

1. Year and model of vehicle
2. IH8Mud Handle
3. Location of vehicle
4. Country of Origin (by this I mean the country it was first shipped to- ie, my 70 is in the USA, but was originally for the Canadian market, so the country of origina would be Canada)
5. Mileage on the truck odometer, in KMs please
6. Modifications, if any
6. How you use the truck- DD, trail rig, garage queen, etc.
7. Photos are fine, (you must post them) but please limit them to 1 small jpg

Here we go!

[size=+1] Mods note; Lets keep this to registry info only please. And I will delete the chat posts as I see them. Thanks, BB[/size]
[size=+1] Also it would be nice and highly recommended that we have pictures to go with these posts. It makes the registry that much more enjoyable. So please add a picture to your post if you have not already. If you have trouble posting a picture you can ask me or roscoFJ73 for help in the matter. Cheers and look forward to seeing these trucks :)[/size]

This is a kickass idea. Here are my stats. About revealing the location of your truck. I guess its a possible risk, but I head to Texas quite often and once lived in Austin and was immediately enthusiastic about the possibility of meeting another cruiser owner in a different country. I hope that the potential risk does not dissuade folks from posting thier locations.

Year: 1985
Model: BJ70
Handle: knorrena
Location: Calgary, AB
Country of Origin: (Really Japan) Canada
Kms: 501839
Mods: bypass glow plug timer
Use: Second vehicle

Good Afternoon All,
I have reading the 70 forum for months, but never posted before. I have two 1986 BJ70s (BJ71 per VIN and 1987 per titles) for inclusion in the registery. Their details are

Sep 1986 BJ70
289,500 Km
Kennesaw, GA
Modifications include: ATX turbo, OME suspension, limited slip rear differential, custom built Bullbar & rear bumper, custom sliders are in-work
Daily Driver with some trail time

Oct 1986 BJ70
326,900 Km
Kennesaw, GA
Stock setup without modifications
Restoration Project (long term plan) that the kids will get to drive some

Previously, I owned a 1985 BJ70 and it was a great truck. Last Christmas eve, it saved my daughter's life when a fool ran a stop light and plowed into the driver side door at ~50mph. She walked away with bruises; the truck sustained moderate damage, but the insurance company freaked out and totaled her. Luckily, I was able to locate these two 1986s to keep us driving 70s.

Thanks, have a great weekend
Larry

1. Year and model of vehicle HZJ75 and FJ73

2. IH8Mud Handle roscoFJ73

3. Location of vehicle Perth Western Australia

4. Country of Origin Australia

5. Mileage on the truck odometer, in KMs please HZJ75 =198000 FJ73=281000

6. Modifications HZJ75 is stock except for the BFG 33X10.5
FJ73 has a fully rebuilt 1HZ diesel and matching H55f replacing the old 3F factory unsmogged.
Both have 140+ watt spotties

7 How you use the truck- DD, trail rig, garage queen, etc.
All of the aboveLOL I prefer the FJ73 around the city with its 31 desert dueller, , tighter turning circle and being easier to park.

The HZJ75 is comes into its own as a camping an expedition rig. Its longer wheelbase makes for a more comfy ride and the 2.4Lx1.8Wx1.0H rear tray has about 4 cubic metres of stowage space. Its dual 90 litre tanks give it a range of over 1200 klms fully loaded at 110kph.
